Symptoms

Oracle cluster services going down randomly and some ASM grid disks are missing and dropped, or some ASM disks missing after a reboot.

This query in ASM shows missing disks.


select group_number, disk_number, name, label, path, redundancy, mount_status, header_status from v$asm_disk where mount_status='MISSING'

You can add the disks back, but then these or other disks will eventually be dropped for no apparent reason and may show missing after a reboot.

 

The ASM alert log shows messages such a following related to dropped disks:

WARNING: Started Drop Disk Timeout for Disk 2 (SSD_E0_S23_1310812220P1) in group 4 with a value 12960
WARNING: Started Drop Disk Timeout for Disk 3 (SSD_E0_S22_1310812236P1) in group 4 with a value 12960


WARNING: Disk 2 (SSD_E0_S23_1310812220P1) in group 4 will be dropped in: (12042) secs on ASM inst 2
WARNING: Disk 3 (SSD_E0_S22_1310812236P1) in group 4 will be dropped in: (12042) secs on ASM inst 2

 

A review of the disks and hardware does not indicate any disk issues.
